Cloud Functions Master Course

This course takes a hands-on approach to Firebase Cloud Functions where we build seven different microservices, each demonstrating a fundamental concept of the platform. Here’s a quick summary of the topics you will learn.

  • Serverless Computing Basics
  • HTTP and ExpressJS
  • Event-driven Background Functions
  • Firestore Functions
  • Storage Buckets and the Functions Filesystem
  • Working with Google APIs
  • Callable Functions and Authentication
  • Working with 3rd party APIs like Twilio to send SMS Text messages
  • By the end of this course you will have the foundation necessary to build virtually any Back-End feature into your Firebase app.

This Project is for Developers who… are building a mobile or web app with Firebase, want to learn how to build Back-End features in a serverless NodeJS Back-End and want direct access to the content creator (let’s chat on Slack). Experience Level Required - have at least some experience with JavaScript and programming fundamentals. The course is fast-paced and content-rich, but most of the subject matter is suitable for developers with beginner JavaScript skills. It is expected that you’re already familiar with Firebase because Cloud Functions are a way to extend the platform.

Brand New to Firebase? If you’ve never used Firebase, start by working with the frontend SDKs before attempting Cloud Functions. The video below is a great way to get started:
